Make Ahead Parkerhouse Rolls


One of the requirements for any holiday dinner at our house is homemade rolls.  Hot, fresh, yeasty, right out of the oven parkerhouse rolls. The only problem with homemade rolls on a holiday is how much time they take.  Making the dough, let it rise, form the roll, let it rise, bake.  It takes some time and if all you were making is homemade rolls that wouldn’t be so bad but you are making an entire, huge holiday dinner also!! Today’s recipe will hopefully make that holiday meal prep a little [Continue Reading…]

Cheese & Garlic Rolls

Although these rolls are more bread than pretzel the [Continue Reading…]

Traditionally, my mom is the roll maker at our house and in fact, if you asked her friends what one recipe my mom is most known [Continue Reading…]

Crescent Rolls


I was beginning to think that this post was just not meant to be. Last Sunday I made up a batch of rolls.  They turned out perfect.  They tasted wonderful and they looked beautiful.  They raised  perfectly and were golden brown.  The photos were lovely. Then I got a little over zealous with my camera.  I not only deleted the photos, I totally erased my memory card before I downloaded the pictures.  I was so sad. But it was a great excuse to make another batch of rolls.  They tasted [Continue Reading…]
